Cincinnati Reds say winning is not important… EVER

Just got an email stating the following:

In a deal with the Detroit Tigers, the Reds acquired 2013 No. 1 draft pick RHP Jonathon Crawford and IF Eugenio Suarez in exchange for RHP Alfredo Simon. Later, the Reds acquired RHP Anthony DeSclafani and C Chad Wallach from the Miami Marlins in exchange for RHP Mat Latos.

Are you kidding me? What are the Reds thinking other then we will win someday when the pitchers we just got get to the level of the pitchers we just traded away.

Latos and Simon were #2 and #3 in the rotation. Many in Cincy say Latos is their Ace #2 as he is the same quality as Queto (even though he was hurt most of last year) and last year Simon was on freaking fire going 15-10. The two pitchers they are getting in return have one season in the majors combined!

The Reds need bats not pitching, pitching was good to almost great. How does this do anything but show the fans in Cincy the Reds are once again rebuilding after a failed rebuild.

UPDATE: Totally want to change the name of this article to – “Some where Schottzie the dog pooped on a Reds Pennant”
